UC Riverside Track Facility – Riverside, CA

UC Riverside Track FacilityNext in line in this Big West Conference track series is the UC Riverside Track Facility, the home of the Highlanders. This is a facility that underwent a recent major renovation, thanks in part to the CBS show “Undercover Boss“.  The university chancellor went undercover to learn how bad the track conditions were for the Highlanders track & field teams.  In the end, he pledged to upgrade the stadium and track.  The new track was dedicated two years ago, in 2012.  Kind of a cool story.  You can view a photo gallery of the transformation HERE.  And watch the dedication video below:
